School Closure Information

You will now be aware that as part of the national measures to combat the spread of Coronavirus, the UK government has taken the decision to close indefinitely all state schools in England from the end of the school day on Friday 20th March 2020.  This means that Colchester Royal Grammar School will be closed from Monday 23rd March 2020 onwards, and until we are given permission from the government to re-open.

Earlier this week I gave you details of our contingency plans to provide an education for your sons and daughters remotely.

Each department has a contingency plan to enable the education to be delivered during a school closure.  This will largely, but not solely, involve emailing work at the start of each day for the classes that would normally run during that day.  Most departments have on-line resources including textbooks and presentations on Moodle that students can access.  Homework will be set but only online marking will be used.
